This Week On My Family History Calendar

April 22-April 28

Arthur Wellington Baker (1857-1940), my paternal great great grandfather, was born on this day 161 years ago. He was born in Sumter County, South Carolina and was the son of Alpheus J. Baker (1824-1917) and Mary Ellen (Jones) Baker (1826-1865).

My maternal great-grandmother, Beulah Mae (Price) Roberts (1897-1980) would have been celebrating her 121st birthday on this day. Beulah was born in Bath, Aiken, South Carolina. She was the daughter of Bertrand Campbell Price (1876-after 1922) and Bessie Mae (Eargle) Price (1878-1943).

Interesting how events coincide with one another. Not only did these three happen on one day, but Gil Roberts died on his grandmother Beulah Mae (Price) Robert's birthday.

Who are you remembering this week?
Thanks for stopping by!

Helping you climb your family tree,


  1. It's funny how I thought of my Great Aunt. I didn't get to know her. My Family loved to garden and be outside and were farmers. So I finally got her Bio out of my Draft box due to Earth Day. That side of my family loved the outside environment. She is who I will think about this week. Aunt Clara Ann Sweigard Green.

    1. Thanks for sharing, True. I will be thinking about her too!
